Welcome to Reception

A very warm welcome to all our new Reception children who started last Friday.

We have all been very proud of how quickly they have settled into school life and are beginning to learn school routines.

All our Reception staff have worked hard to create an exciting and stimulating learning environment, both inside and outside and the children have engaged enthusiastically with the new activities.

The Early Years Curriculum is based upon young minds through vibrant, fun filled topics that stimulate the imagination and curiosity of our youngest learners. Topics are often driven by children's interests and learning needs.

Our classrooms are colourful, lively and well-resourced and learning is led through carefully crafted and specific play skills.

The relationship between home and school is a crucial aspect of your childs educational journey and so we send letters and regularly update our website to keep you fully informed. We also appreciate your support with regular reading with your child.

For more information, please contact Mrs Helen Lynch, Deputy Head.
